Installing Linux through VirtualBox??

I was attempting to install RHEL through VirtualBox installed already on Windows.The CD by default make two partitions automatically without asking for the manual or automatix partition option.Once its ran,it will automatically install OS at single attempt.
Now The Issue is when I am attempting to install it through VirtualBox it says "Partition is not allocated"
All I tried is Create a Virtual image of 10 GB and booting CD from CDROM.It is running successfulyy for 5 mins and then suddenly throwing error "Partition not allocated".

Pls Help

What is running successfully for 5 minutes, the installer?

This is not normal. I have installed Centos (a RHEL clone) on virtualbox and had the choice of manual partitioning. You might want to try that stage of the installation again. Perhaps the mount points have not been set correctly
